How are the mosquitoes as of late? We are heading to the island next week, and have one that is very sensitive to bites.
Great, thank you!
we were there 2 weeks ago and I think I saw one, but I'm not sure :)
We just got back from Aruba on Monday May 7th. I did not see any mosquito's. We did eat outside at night quite a few times and were not bitten. It was very windy the whole week so that might have had something to do with it.
I’ve seen very few mosquitoes after 20 years on the island. I do get bit by sand fleas though. You said somebody is sensitive to “bites” so I thought I’d bring this up. Bring bug spray with you and use it before you go out at night (dusk). I only spray my lower legs/feet and usually I’m good.
I can count on one hand how many times I have been bitten in my 26x on the island and I don't use any bug spray. My son however seems to get bitten anytime he does not have bug spray on. I would do as notanman suggested and spray prior to heading out for the night.
I just got back yesterday and I did not encounter one bug at all the whole time we were there. We were there for a week.
I would worry more about the no see ums, we got bitten alive! Mosquitos weren't that bad!
As someone who attracts mosquitoes this is music to my ears! Will post after my upcoming trip there to see how a magnet for bites fares there.
